Create A Game

From a scheduled game notification or player page, users can invite other users to games. When selecting to invite players from a created game, users can select to invite players that they have saved in their Favorites. If at a user’s page, the user will be prompted to select the game to invite the player to from My Games.
My games, the alternative view to game notifications, displays a user’s scheduled games in a list. This option simplifies the expanded Calendar format. Invitations are not displayed until confirmed.
User favorites are bookmarked court and player profiles to allow quick access. Users can save frequently visited courts to their favorites to reduce search time for courts. User may also add other users to their favorites to make it easy to find players to invite to a game.
Users can view all game invitations pending a response. Users can choose to confirm or decline all game invites they receive. From this menu, users can also choose to Create A Game and Invite Player.
The search feature allows users to create custom searches for courts, players and upcoming games. Users can search the entire United States or narrow their search radius to as small as a single city.
The player directory is a full listing of users. Using the search option, users can reduce the directory down to players in a specific area, allowing them to find players they would like to compete with.
Users can use the my profile page to update their user information and home court selection. The user age, height, level played and position displayed on the Dashboard is inputted and updated from here.
My Home Court
A user’s home court is the location that they play at with the most frequency. When a user selects a home court, their rating is computed into that court’s rating. A court’s rating is the average of all the player ratings of the users who have that court saved as their home court. This is important because it allows players looking for games to find the gym with an average skill level that suits them.
